Are you ready for a quick peek at leno? Leno is a hand-manipulated weaving pattern that creates decorative gaps in your fabric. And while it isn’t technically “lace”, it will give you a lacy effect.

Episode 96 just skims the surface of the fascinating world of leno. It’ll set you up for success as you explore all the twisty things you can do with this lace pattern. Enjoy!

Show Notes –

Bead Leno – have you already tried leno and are ready to complicate things? Give bead leno a go! I found a very interesting article from Flora & Fiber about this version of leno. And as it turns out, the beads in bead lino are part of the process – not part of the finished product. Go figure! I learn something new everyday! Click here to read more about this fascinating weave technique. 

Floating selvedges – as you watch today’s video, you’ll hear me highly recommend incorporating a pair of floating selvedges into your leno project. So I have a reminder on standby, just in case you need a refresher on what those are and how to install them on your loom. Peruse episode 42 right here to jog your memory!
